Merrimack Pharmaceuticals Announces Top-Line Results From A Single Arm Phase 2 Advanced Lung Cancer Study In Patients With Resistance To An Anti-EGFR Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor

MM-121 is a fully human monoclonal antibody that targets ErbB3, a cell surface receptor implicated in tumor growth and survival. By inhibiting ErbB3 signaling, MM-121 is designed to restore sensitivity, delay resistance and enhance the anti-tumor effect of a combination therapy partner. Sanofi and Merrimack entered into an exclusive, global license and collaboration agreement for MM-121 in 2009.
